Healthy Bowl: Mango Pineapple Delight with Hippie Granola

I have a love-hate relationship with our current weather. I ADORE the sun, the fun summer activities, to wear shorts and flip flops, and the general summer vibes. However, when the temperature reaches the three-digit mark, things get real. I mean I shower, get all ready to go out, and as soon as I walk

One of my favorite things is having a delicious snack to munch on while working, taking a break, or hanging out with friends…specially those that are crunchy and full of flavor! My favorite type of snack is one that not only provides an amazing taste bud experience, but that also nourishes the body. I love efficiency, and this type of

How-To: Make The Perfect PALEO Cheeseboard

How many times have we been bummed out at not being able to fully participate in a Cheese and Wine party due to dietary restrictions? I know I have! Dairy does not sit well with us Paleo people (especially when consumed in higher quantities) — it can bloat us, make us feel uncomfortable, or even give us nausea.

Cherry Walnut Summer Salad

When the days get longer and hotter, and one starts sweating seconds after stepping outside, one knows summer is RIGHT around the corner. Everyone loves summer…especially this Ecuadorian girl right here! I am used to lots of direct sunlight and humidity, which means I am totally okay with tan lines and perspiration. In fact, I crave both bad

Best waffles I have made to date. No joke. These little fellers are something else, you guys! I made these for my husband and for myself yesterday for a Sunday-fun-day brunch date at our house, and oh-boy, we were in for a total treat. I also made crisp uncured bacon and scrambled eggs to go

Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes with Rosemary

My favorite dinners consist of nice juicy steaks and hearty side dishes. Give me that, and I melt. When we go out for dinner and I order this combination, I will not stop saying “this is so good” until the meal is over; my husband knows I tend to do this and knows how passionate

It’s June already! Can you believe it? How CRAZY is that? Seems like we went directly from winter to summer, skipping Spring altogether! Time is passing by way too fast. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely planning on slowing down to be able to take it all in, and really savor the sunshine

Simple Paleo Bread

My family loves bread, and I think this love started with my great grandma. Every day, my great grandma would eat freshly baked Ecuadorian bread; she had a piece for breakfast and a piece for her “light dinner” (which consisted of just “cafecito con pan” — coffee with bread). It was very cute to watch her eat her meals; she ate them
